Many people dream of owning an elegant Georgian terrace house or picturesque thatched cottage, but looking after historic buildings can be a daunting task. This practical handbook clearly explains everything you need to know. After outlining the building and conservation regulations and the financial aid available, it describes how to undertake repairs and maintenance from cellar to rafters in a sympathetic, period-appropriate manner, including fire precautions for thatched roofs. First published as Care for Old Houses (1984), but revised and updated.

Review:

Pamela Cunningham provides all the necessary information in plain language, many well chosen photographs, and some splendidly clear drawings... A godsend for owners of old houses. --Country Life

Should be bought by all who live in or are contemplating taking over an old house.
--National Trust Magazine

From the Publisher:

As more and more people become interested in the preservation of their heritage and in the conservation of the historic structures associated with it, this book is a welcome resource for anyone trying to repair or adapt an old building. With separate chapters devoted to roofs, walls, floors and ceilings and detailed treatment for interior features, the book is illustrated throughout with helpful diagrams and photographs of various projects. An appendix is included on specialist fire precautions for thatched properties.
